While some of these titles I have seen numerous times in 70mm, this is a pretty impressive collection. The big news of course is PORGY AND BESS. Not sure what they will show... the only extant 70mm print I have ever heard about had German subtitles. LORD JIM is also a rarity. I do hope that the east coast 70mm fans will come out and support this. Most of the films are showing on weekends, so it should make the trip pretty easy. If this is not supported, people should not complain when this is the last time we have an opportunity to see these films in their original format. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY Fri, Jun 29, 11:30; Sat, Jun 30, 12 noon, 11:30; Sun, Jul 1, 1:00, Wed, Jul 4, 2:00 VERTIGO Sat, Jul 7, 3:00; Sun, Jul 8, 1:00 CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG Sat, Jul 14, 1:00; Sun, Jul 15, 2:30 WEST SIDE STORY Wed, Jul 18, 3:00; Fri, Jul 20, 1:00; Sat, Jul 21, 2:30; Sun, Jul 22, 1:00 SPARTACUS Sat, Jul 28, 12:30; Sun, Jul 29, 1:00 BARAKA Fri, Aug 3, 9:45; Sat, Aug 4, 10:00; Sun, Aug 5, 1:45 THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN AND THEIR FLYING MACHINES or: HOW I FLEW FROM LONDON TO PARIS IN 25 HOURS 11 MINUTES Sat, Aug 11, 1:00; Sun, Aug 12, 1:30 IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD Sat, Aug 18, 12:30; Sun, Aug 19, 1:45 KHARTOUM Sat, Aug 25, 1:00; Tue, Aug 28, 4:20; Thu, Aug 30, 4:20 LORD JIM Sun, Aug 26, 1:20; Mon, Aug 27, 4:00; Wed, Aug 29, 4:00 TRON Fri, Aug 31, 7:00, 12 midnight; Sat, Sep 1, 2:00, 12 midnight PORGY AND BESS Sun, Sep 2, 1:00; Mon, Sep 3, 2:00 SOUTH PACIFIC Sat, Sep 15, 1:00; Sun, Sep 16, 1:00

Sad to report that the screenings of PORGY AND BESS have been cancelled due to rights issues. Must admit that was the one film in this festival I most wanted to see. C'mon Gershwin and Goldwyn estates... let this movie be seen!

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.
